Q: I plan to visit the most popular museums of Barcelona and I am wondering which card grants me a higher discount - Barcelona Card or the Articket?
A: Barcelona Card provides free access to more than 25 of the most famous and interesting museums in Barcelona (for additional information – Barcelona for Free).
You can visit without payment popular museums, such as Museu Picasso, Museu De La Xocolata (Chocolate Museum), Fundació Joan Miró, Museum of Contemporary Art (Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona), CosmoCaixa (Science Museum), Museu Etnològic, Museu Olímpic i de l’Esport Joan Antoni Samaranch and Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (National Art Museum of Catalonia) and many other (for additional information – List of Discounts Included in Barcelona Card and Attractions and Tours in Barcelona).
Nonetheless, if you are interested just in museums and do not want to visit other landmarks, we suggest not to purchase the card. In this case Barcelona Museum Pass will be a more suitable choice (for additional information – Barcelona Card for Museums).
If you would also like to enjoy the benefits of free transportation, you can choose between the regular discount cards related to the public transportation in Barcelona. There are offered for example, free daily or three day cards or you can buy the T10 Transport Ticket (for additional information – Barcelona Card and Public Transportation).
